Deon had the opportunity to spend some time with the Puccini Anniversary and his review is now available on the AVSA web.

Thank you, Deon, for the review. Obviously, I am very pleased to read your overall positive impressions! Here is a snippet of the review.

Audio Analogue Puccini Anniversary: Making music with finesse

There’s a certain elegance to a simple, functional design that focuses on performance rather than frippery. The original Audio Analogue Puccini integrated amplifier was a case in point – and its successor continues that tradition, while adding further sonic urge and impetus.

Ok, so the Maestro landed in my system.... iFi Pro and Zingali Evo Twenty 1.2's
Everybody knows the Mingda 300B Preamp with Perreaux 350p/Pass Labs 30.5/100.8 are my references. Not anymore.
I had to read and even check if there is no DSP processing in this amp. Dolby 3D or something ? How can this amplifier separate performers and instruments in such a way that when you turn your head towards the instrument it sounds louder. Exactly like in the real world. You can concentrate on individual items. but by engaging it.  :notworthy:
I listened 3x. I got people with MAD systems to come listen. Maybe I had some stroke. Or ears popped open after years..... ALAS I cant fathom it. This system somehow clicked into possibly the best system I ever heard irrespective of price.
So this weekend Im using the Maestro on B&W801's and also some Audio Physik Caldera's. It already made the Vivid G4's explode in sound. Not on the Zingali level, but very good.
Maybe I have found a true reference here....  :thinking: :thinking:
Ill explore more..
I was born analog, not digit by digit....
